Julianne Hough had good intentions when she dressed up as Crazy Eyes from Orange Is the New Black, but I guess she thought blackface was the new norm because she wore it as part of her costume. It’s created some controversy, even here on Evil Beet. Her brother, Derek Hough, Dancing with the Stars superstar, is honest (mostly?) about her Halloween blunder. He spoke with E! News, via Daily News and said,
She is just beyond beside herself. She’s so apologetic. She’s so so sorry. Obviously, it wasn’t her brightest moment in her life, but hopefully we can move on.
Really, Derek? It was “obvious”? Then why the hell didn’t you let her know? Because here you are hanging out with her and her friends:
Weird that you were totally okay with the costume then. At least it seems like you’re totally okay with it, since you’ve no problem going out and being photographed with her.
Ms. Hough has since apologized on twitter to mixed responses.
